What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

How Is McNabb Like a Mythic Hero? I see parallels between the Eagles QB and Odysseus and Hercules. Mythological greats face a series of incredible tests, and emerge triumphant. While D.

Yet he engineered an amazing comeback victory over KC. So let's make up a list of his 7 Most Herculean Feats. Here are a couple for starters: Winning with a broken leg in Arizona. And triumphing over pill-popping chump Rush Limbaugh. Share your ideas by posting a comment.
